Our neighborhood, known as Lafayette Park, has been hailed as "one of the most spatially successful and socially significant statements in urban renewal" and as a "prototype for future urban development predicated on human values." The site contains the largest collection of buildings by the architect Mies van der Rohe in the world, as well as the only group of row houses built to his specifications.

Lafayette Park remains one of the most stable neighborhoods in the city of Detroit, comprised of a committed community of residents, some of which have lived in the neighborhood since its founding; while others have recently moved in and have taken active roles within the neighborhood and beyond. We encourage you to explore our website and learn more about Who We Are, our Stories, Films, or other articles about our neighborhood.
